'Let’s Talk' is an movement that aims to raise awareness of mental health, and let you know that you are not alone. We all have mental health that needs to be looked after just as much as our physical health.
There are varying factors of life that can affect our mental health – from bereavement to bullying – and I want to shed a light on this and show you that although at times it can seem dark, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Using a YouTube channel, my aim is to conduct interviews with people of all ages and backgrounds where they share their experiences with their mental health. I approach and ask the difficult questions and show that you are not the only person going through hard times; and if we all come together and show support, we can end the stigma surrounding mental health.
I have created this Crowdfunder to raise money to allow me to start my YouTube channel - this involves purchasing video cameras, recording equipment, microphones, lighting etc. to ensure that the videos I am creating will be professional. I would also like to create branded items (like mugs/journals) that can be sold to raise further funds to expand the YouTube channel (including social media advertising etc.)
